Verdict

Chigun won her maiden at Salisbury by 10l where she made all. It would be no surprise to see her take this by the scruff of the neck but there are some promising fillies in opposition this time including Valiant Girl, who was brought with a late run to score over the C&D in June. KEENE DANCER has improved with each run and followed her Windsor maiden success with an impressive victory in a handicap there. She's progressing nicely and a handicap mark of 85 looks very reasonable. Amber Silk looked a nice prospect when scoring over a mile here and there was obviously something amiss when she finished tailed off at Newbury. It was a moderate contest that Strathnaver won on fast ground at Lingfield but she's capable of better and has a nice weight.
